Can you send me more information about this card?  I.e., is it
"Apple-compatible" using Apple's drivers, or do you need separate

This is an annoying problem for me at the moment.  The mac-side
utilities create and understand ufs "level 1" filesystems.  The
current version of ufs is "level 2."  Among other things, level 2
of the ufs handles a "clean" flag for the filesystem status.  All
of my filesystems are level 2--which means that I can't modify them
safely from the installer.  You can upgrade your filesystems with
the -c 2 option to fsck.

I'm hoping that I can get rid of the installer and mkfs for the
next full release by having the install done from within a booted
kernel.  "Ciao, Mac interface."  Be patient--more details on this
will be forthcoming.
